More hoops

My university have contacted me, to ‘suggest’ that I get evidence of good behaviour in Germany as I lived there for 8 months and the CRB check won’t cover it. This can take the form of a letter from my employer or a certificate of good behaviour from the authorities. To get this, I need to complete a form with basic identifying details on it, I then need to get this stamped by an embassy, consulate (£15), notary public (unknown charge) or public authority (whatever that really means) as proof that I am who I say I am and then send this, plus 13 euro to Germany to get this document! It’s going to cost me about £30 quid once postage and any bank charges are taken into account, just to prove I was well behaved, add this to the original CRB charge and I think I have a right to be a little bit peeved. I know it’s necessary to check I’m not a child-molester, but really….. this seems a little over the top to me. 

OK, rant over!

    It never end does it! Don’t worry, you’ll get there, and all this form filling is good practice for when you start teaching!
